About eccElearning

eccElearning is the world leader in online spine surgery education for surgeons, doctors, radiologists & physios. Find out more about us!

eccElearning was founded in 2015 with the goal of improving the quality, convenience and cost effectiveness of educating the next generation of young spine surgeons, for the ultimate purpose of improving the treatment of patients suffering spinal disorders.

eccElearning  assembled a highly respected and uniquely experienced international Scientific Editorial Board.

180 lectures were commissioned from over 130 of the world’s leading spine surgeons, clinicians and scientists – all experienced educators at the postgraduate level; see a list of the contributors on our Spine Surgery Faculty page.

 Together, the editorial board developed the educational philosophy, or pedagogy, of the eccElearning postgraduate Spine Surgery Education Program and Diploma in Spine Surgery.

Since these beginnings, we have expanded the number of courses available. From our original Diploma in Spine Surgery we can now also offer extra courses to a greater audience.

These include the Endoscopic Spine Surgery Programme, Specialist Certificates in Spine Radiology, Spine Physiotherapy, and Spine Trauma, as well as the Residents’ Spine Programme, and our collaboration with Rush University Medical Centre, RISE.

eccElearning is dedicated to excellence and continuous improvement in spine medicine education. We will develop and deploy new technologies with the capability to advance medical education and improve patient outcomes.

eccElearning encourages international collaborations with institutions and organisations who share the objective of advancing spine medicine education.

eccElearning ‘s first collaborative partner was the European Spine Journal, the leading academic spine journal. The Spine Surgery Education Program is co-branded with, and endorsed by, the European Spine Journal.

Rush University and eccElearning collaborated on the first academically-sponsored, blended learning, online spine programme, RISE. The first course covered Cervical Radiculopathy and Myelopathy.

eccElearning also has a collaboration with OOT, the Open Operating Theatre, and much of the rich OOT library of high quality surgical videos, Master Lectures, Grands Rounds and symposium lectures are available through the eccElearning portal.
